Michael Schumacher’s condition has shown small progress in recovering from a skiing accident that left him in a coma for six months before he emerged from it two months ago.
Corinna Schumacher, the wife of the stricken ex-Formula One champion, wrote a young boy: “I would like to thank you for your best wishes and your kind present, which help us to move forward in those difficult moments.”
“Our Michael is a fighter and he will never give up,” she said, according to Fox Sports.
Former Ferrari team boss Stefano Domenicali revealed that he’s in contact with Schumacher’s family.
“We are in contact and they tell me that there is small, continuous progress. I know that we all hope that this terrible waiting will end in the best way,” he said. “Unfortunately we just have to wait,” added Domenicali.
On Dec. 29, Schumacher suffered head injuries when he was skiing in the French Alps.
The young boy who sent the letter, identified only as Aidan, told the Mirror: “I am pleased to have received the letter from Michael’s wife. I hope he gets completely better.”
He added, “It was unreal to get the message from Michael Schumacher’s wife. I have a huge interest in motor racing and knew all about his achievements. He is very brave and I hope he gets well soon,” according to the Ulster Herald.
“Aidan’s strong point is his determination. He has his head set on something and he’ll torture us until he gets it or does it himself,” his father, Mark, told the paper.
